Disaster Preparedness Planning Conference


Fruitdale Grange is hosting

Disaster Preparedness Planning Conference

May 23, 2018, 9-12 noon

Fruitdale Grange, 1440 Parkdale Drive,
Grants Pass, OR 97527

All over our state and country there are disasters that happen—fires, earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, tsunamis, blizzards and even occasional dislocations of essential food and water due to economic disasters. In order to encourage greater preparedness here in Josephine County, the Fruitdale Grange is hosting a Disaster Preparedness Planning Conference this Spring, before fire season.

We invite all governmental and other organizations to attend, such as: county emergency services, public health department, hospitals, schools, police, sheriff, fire departments, State Fire, water agencies, ODT & debris clearing agencies, city councils, Board of Commissioners, Human Services, CERT emergency responder organizations, service clubs, churches, synagogues, Red Cross, SPCA, Humane Society, homeless services, charities, food security experts, regional medical reserve corp., community radio stations and ham radio organizations, hardware stores, local food stores and farmers groups.

We will encourage all to frame the dialogue positively as exploring disaster risks, identifying greatest unmet needs and how we can work together to augment existing plans and develop greater regional preparedness.

We envision a matchmaking format wherein government agencies briefly state what they need help with and non-profits, stores, churches and service organizations state what they can help with. We look forward to working with all of you.

Please RSVP to help us plan for the space, with your name, organization and how many people will be attending to Jerry Allen at jerryallengitfiddler@gmail.com. Send any questions to the same email address. Thank you.
